Measuring carbon in Peru's tropical peatlands
CIFOR researchers get their hands dirty to study Peru's mysterious peat swamps, which are home to a very special tree — and which store immense amounts of carbon that would otherwise enter the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas. CIFOR is seeking to improve the scientific knowledge of carbon stocks and greenhouse gas fluxes in these undisturbed peatlands in the Amazon basin.
